Germany saw a total commercial real estate investment volume of €11 billion in the first half of 2011, a 24 percent increase over 1H2010, according to Colliers International, which predicts a year-end total of more than €20 billion.

The limited supply is pushing up rents in the best locations but banks still consider retail a risky bet, limiting financing for new development.
